    I actually already own one, so I’ll pass on participating, however I still wish all participants best of luck ;)

    • A Parker

      How has it worked for you? I know there’s some disappointment around for what % of the library it supports, but even just playing all PS1/PS2 classics would be a huge coup :-)

      Do you use it primarily for vita games, PS Now or as a PS4 stream box?

      • Nonscpo

        I use it primarily to play Vita games on the big screen, and thanks to it being portable, I can switch from TV screen so easily; playing Dangan Ronpa on a HD TV looks glorious :)

        P.S. If your still considering getting one, Id argue now’s the time to get one, with so many of them on sale. All Vita games after the launch of VITATV are suppose to be compatible.

    Very Coll thanks! Question though I liked you on FB and tweeted at you. How will you know that I did all those entries?

    • G.

      Likes, comments, subscriptions, tweets, etc. are all being tracked. All of these entries will be compiled at the end of the giveaway entry period and then a random winner will be picked.

      Winners will be selected blindly, so while I may not know it’s you specifically that made all of those entries, each will be in the “hat” as long as they followed the guidelines.

      When the winner is picked, they will be notified via their means of entry that was drawn from the hat.

      Thanks for entering! :)
